Jim Ireton - Vote for Me Because Joe Albero Is a Racist
When you can't run on your record, this is the type of politics you can expect. I have a question for the residents of Salisbury - should Jim Ireton be spending his time engaging in the politics of destruction or should he be spending his time trying to solve the problems of Salisbury? A leader would be working to solve problems. Jim is clearly not a leader.During the course of the debate, Albero did comment that Ireton had four years to create jobs in the city, but hadn't. Ireton's response was to blame the city council for his lack of accomplishment.
The NAACP put on a great event. Unfortunately, the format did not permit a substantive discussion of issues (regardless of Ireton's antics). Allowing only one minute to answer a question simply didn't offer the opportunity to here where candidates really stand on issues. The short answer period was precipitated by the fact that eight candidates appeared at the forum.
The event was taped for broadcast on PAC-14. It will also be available on YouTube after airing.
